Parade Dates and Times:

Brisbane - Sunday August 3 – 1pm
Melbourne - Sunday August 10 – 12.40pm

Wayne 'The Train' Hancock

Wayne Hancock is heading to Australia to perform at the GreazeFest Kustom Kulture Festivals.

Wayne The Train will be headlining both the Brisbane and Melbourne festivals.

Like the comfortable crackle of a Wurlitzer jukebox, Wayne Hancock is the embodiment of traditional rockabilly, hillbilly boogie and swing.

Wayne’s uncompromising interpretation of the music he loves is what defines him: steeped in traditional but never retro; bare bones but bone shaking; hardcore but with a swing.

The phrase most frequently echoed throughout his career is "Wayne Hancock is the real deal".

Performance dates:
GreazeFest Brisbane, Saturday August 2
GreazeFest Melbourne, Saturday August 9

Eddie Clendening

Eddie Clendening is raising the bar for authentic rockabilly music. Eddie has toured extensively with his group “The Blue Ribbon Boys” and is now heading to Australia to perform at GreazeFest.

Performance dates:
GreazeFest Brisbane – Friday August 1 GreazeFest Melbourne – Sunday August 10

Ruby Dee and The Snakehandlers

Ruby Dee and The Snakehandlers are a four-piece combo out of Austin Texas who blend snarling rockabilly with honky tonk and roadhouse rock’n’roll.

With five albums and multiple tours across the USA and Europe, Ruby Dee and her Snakehandlers are finally heading to Australia for a string of dates, including GreazeFest Brisbane.

Performance dates:
GreazeFest Brisbane, Sunday August 3

Wowweeee, talk about a wild wild party!

The GreazeFest has once again lived up to its catch cry of being Australia’s all-killer no-filler kustom kulture weekender! The koolest party this side of the planet keeps getting bigger and better as... masses of hot rodders, throttle jockeys, red hot rockers and hopped-up hepcats made the scene at GreazeFest last weekend.

Friday night kicked off with the Rockabilly Shakedown, Saturday’s inaugural Hot Rod Show Day One was a hit and is destined to stay, Saturday night’s Shakedown with The Paladins was a once-in-a-lifetime spectacle and Sunday’s Hot Rod Show Day Two was a bumper-day full to the brim of kustom kulture action.

Thank you to everyone who took part in this weekend we call GreazeFest and our annual celebration of the wonderful world of kustom kulture.

The Planet Rockers at GreazeFest:

GreazeFest Director Lori Lee Cash talks to Lizzie Stafford at The Sunday Mail. An excerpt...

Looking back on rockabilly in Brisbane in the 1980s:

"You had to be really dedicated if you wanted to be into it and it was really only a handful of people who were into it. Whereas it's so easy to be cool now. Just Google it."

Speaking about the GreazeFest:

"I call GreazeFest 'Christmas for rockabillys'.

GreazeFest provides a backbone in the community... it's like a structure for people to thrive within. It gives them the opportunity to be around like-minded people - to completely be themselves and feel comfortable and safe and also to have that real social aspect."
GreazeFest Director Lori Lee Cash talks to Charley Rico at City News. An excerpt...

As founder of Robot Productions, Cash is the event director of the annual GreazeFest. She is well known in the scene for organising flawless rockabilly shows where the music is centre stage.

"This music has got mass appeal and it really only had a very small lifespan on the charts before it got watered down by the record companies turning it into something even more popular. It's pretty catchy - it's the beat, the slap bass and fabulous guitar riffs."

While the rockabilly movement appears stemmed in the yesteryear, Cash says she doesn't subscribe to living in the past.

"I've always been a supporter of what's current in the rockabilly genre" she says. "I've always wanted to represent what's happening now. There are so many bands out there now playing every weekend of the year that are writing music right now that just happens to be the same music stemmed from the 50s and they're doing it now because it's good music."

Rock'n'Roll Road Trip
- Lori Lee heads back to the U.S.A. for a smorgasbord of music in November 2011, catching up with Jason Lee Wilson and visiting the famous Smokehouse, as featured in the Best of GreazeFest Volume 2. Read the blog here

Saving Cats & Kittens

As part of our annual support of the RSPCA, GreazeFest has sponsored two pre-adoption pens at the new animal shelter recently built in Wacol. GreazeFest is a founding sponsor of the new site.

Festivals and Fun Times

The GreazeFest Team received an expected pat on the back on New Year's Eve.

The Courier Mail's final edition on December 31, 2011 ran a series of 'Spirit of Queensland' photos as visual markers from the past year.

Featured on the double page spread was a photo of Drea Morsby in July getting ready for GreazeFest!

It was the only photo that was about culture or fun, everything else was news or sport! The caption said "Festivals, events and fun times made their mark on the year. Here Brisbane artist and model gets ready for GreazeFest".
